Most of our "true-life" blogs are about our fabulous brides. However, today we wanted to show you the amazing details from the non-profit UCP Event: Once Upon A Time, that was held at the Governor's Mansion in Little Rock. When we were approached by Inspired Grace Events, who was handling the event design, to create something for the event using earthy and whimsical touches with a modern twist, we went straight to the design board!
We started the design with the earth, so we brought in custom wreaths that we added to using Bear Grass and white Dendrobium Orchid blooms. We knew that Inspired Grace had centerpieces being brought in that were to be used as anchors in the room, and that those centerpieces would be very clean and modern. Because we wanted to continue the same clean look, we created floral accents that could be attached to the centerpieces that would add a whimsical flair. These accents combined the Bear Grass and Dendrobium Orchids from the wreaths in an asymmetrical design to compliment the modern centerpieces.
Considering we never saw the centerpieces that the floral accents would be added to, we were ecstatic to see how well the accents worked. This event will definitely go into our book of design favorites, and serves as a great example of how when given the right direction two worlds can be combined perfectly.
